“This is your classic whodunit! The characters jumped out at you like real people. Evan Buckley isn’t your noir style detective, but he works hard and takes a lickin and keeps on tickin. You find yourself rooting for him to succeed and if he has an afternoon delight along the way, it all fits. Well designed plot that doesn’t give it all away, but the clues are there if you stick to your instincts. Looking forward to the next in this series.”
EVAN BUCKLEY THRILLERS #1
A haunted man.
A desperate woman.
A chilling secret that won’t stay buried.
WISE-CRACKING, street-smart private-eye Evan Buckley’s wife went to work one day and didn’t come home. He’s never stopped looking for her. Tormented by demons, consumed by his unrelenting quest for the truth, he loses himself in other people’s problems.
When Linda Clayton’s son Daniel disappeared ten years ago, she didn’t think her life could get any worse—until her husband ran away. Makes you thankful you’re not Linda Clayton.
After Evan’s latest case ends in disaster, he’s at the end of his tether—until fate throws him headlong into Linda Clayton’s desperate world and a long-dead investigation that everybody wants to stay that way.
But Evan never does what everybody wants, and he vows to find answers for her that he can’t find for himself. As the suspense ratchets up, he’s caught in a desperate fight for his life with a stone-cold killer who will stop at nothing to protect his secrets . . .

Brilliant work by a brilliant author. Strap in and hold on tight, this adventure will twist and turn and take you on a thrill ride you won’t soon forget.
Another excellent story in the Evan Buckley series written by a master wordsmith. Excellent plot with lots of twists and turns that surprised me with each page turn. 20 years of family strife and revenge make this an interesting read. Don’t miss it. This is the type of story that will probably in some ways haunt you forever. I know, it will me.
Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great crime thriller movie, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.
Evan Buckley gets better with each book. As do the story lines. I’ve read these three in a row in only two days! Ready for the next one!
One of the best I’ve read in a while. Plenty to keep any reader totally engrossed. The twist at the end surprised the heck out of me.
Compelling. Fast-paced story that leaves unanswered questions. There is violence but no drag-you-down drama. Intriguing storyline with plenty of twists and gallows humor. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. Classic quote and entertaining dialogue.
Wow. I have just found a new author to love and follow. I love the honest grittiness of this new character, his flaws, his heart and his determination. James Harper seems to know the human condition very well and explores it in his writing. With gripping plots and a few helpers this books comes to a very satisfying ending. I recommend it. Soooo good.
I loved this book and its protagonist, Evan Buckley. Every thing about this story is believable and the character development is true to life. Great story and dialogue. I’ll read everything this author turns out.
This book is outstanding and possibly one of the best mystery books I have read! Boy oh boy page turner all the way. I was nervous scared I mean I had all kinds of emotions going on there. I wanted it to end to relieve my stress but was disappointed when it did end. I wanted more!!!!!
